)-- Call of Atlantis™, an acclaimed puzzler by Playrix® Entertainment, a casual games developer and publisher of such titles as Fishdom™, Royal Envoy™, Gardenscapes™, 4 Elements™, and others, has been recently announced the iParenting Media Award Winner. The iParenting Media Awards Program seeks to provide a credible and objective method of determining outstanding products in the marketplace and honors them with the consumer award.
Call of Atlantis™ was released in 2008 and since then was localized into 10 languages and made available at retail worldwide. It was nominated for the Great Game Awards (RealNetworks) 2008 as a Top Match-3 Game and honored with GDN Silver Award.
